In this course, we will explore the symbolic function of money within the clinical setting. Enactments around financial matters are one way our patients communicate their unconscious experience. By listening to what occurs in the field between patient and therapist, clinicians can move beyond fear when it comes to discussing issues, such as raising fees or enforcing the cancellation policy, and instead begin to utilize the conversation around money as a clinical tool that can expand our insight into our client’s internal world.
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
Identify the practical applications of discussing financial matters and setting fees in a clinical setting.
Describe 3 ways unaddressed money anxieties may arise in transference and/or counter-transference.
List 3 ways race, class, and gender may influence the therapists' and the clients' expectations around money in the clinical setting.
